  • When looking for things to do in N. Carolina I recommend stopping here. It is truly a historic experience. It is amazing to see how people lived in the 1800's.  more »
  • There's quite a bit to see at Stagville and it's all very interesting. Note that tours only go out at 11, 1, and 3 and I would call ahead to be sure. You start with a tour of a plantation house next t...  more »

  • Great place. I went with a school group so we had a guy. I'm not sure if that's something that is typical but that really help with the experience. We got to go inside a former slave dwelling and had a very Interactive experience sawing a log. And we went into the main house and were able to compare the differences. Overall a really good experience and they do a really good job there
  • Plantation at Historic Stagville is great. i'm not going to tell you what is here. i don't want to spoil it for you. all i can say is the tour guide was wonderful and my family learned so much. its a must to see. if you can go during the slow time and get there early. the tour guide took us a huge barn that wasn't part of the tour. maybe you'll get lucky like we did.
  • Really enjoyed our visit to this plantation. Our guide Gil made it ver meaningful with his stories, information and willingness to answer questions. It’s such an important part of our history-everyone should experience it!
  • Did not look really practical. They danced around facts, instead of coming straight out and stating that the slaves played music and danced to entertain their masters against their will, and if they refused they were beaten and/or hung. They didn't point out trees that slaves were hung on or tied to, to be beaten, just for wanting something as simple as food, water or soap to take a bath. I think in these situations, all of the facts should be told so that history can be known and the younger generations can see how far we have evolved.
  • Friendly knowledgeable staff. Wonderful interpreter and buildings helped bring enslaved African-American to life!
